The best way I can help you is if we use Kabissa – Space for Change in Africa.
I suggest this because if we only communicate in a one-to-one private way then things will go too slowly. (I become a communication bottleneck). If we communicate in a public way there will be a better chance of getting other people involved.
I have made a start.
I have started to make your needs and interests visible in Dadamac’s space on Kabissa. I wrote something in a “general purpose area” called the “First Thursday Group” (It has connections with an earlier group of that name):
What I wrote on Kabissa
Still crazily busy this month. A mixture of reasons – I won’t list them all.
Regarding First Thursday Group I’m trying to bring other conversations over into this space.
I hope to bring Chief Gbade Adejumo here. I want him to share:
- what he has been doing regarding Farmers and Pastoralists research
- how we followed up on that when he was in London earlier this month
- what we are discussing as possible follow up.
I also want to bring Joanna Norton founder and CEO of Keywords here. @Tobias she is doing amazing stuff related to literacy (and much more) and is going to Uganda soon. She wonders if I can help her with any contacts. Any suggestions from Kabissa?
Joanna – I’m thinking that you might be interested in connecting with the work of a group that meets in London and is to do with STEM subjects and higher education in Africa – I’ll find the link if you ask me.
What I want you to do next
Please go the July First Thursday topic on Kabissa and scroll down until you find my post. Here is the link First Thursday Group 8 – July 2015 – Share your news – and your hopes
